Mayor Valérie Plante has asked the Quebec government to impose a temporary cap on the service fees charged to restaurants by Uber Eats, DoorDash, SkipTheDishes, and other food delivery apps in Montreal.

Plante says the fees greatly affect the food industry which has been hit the hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Of course, she’s not the first to make the argument. It’s been a reoccurring debate for the past ten months since restaurants now depend on delivery services to survive and some of these services are charging commission fees of up to 30%.

Plante’s request was made in response to the 8 pm to 5 am nightly curfew in Quebec which prevents some local restaurants from delivering during the curfew time.
